Growing up in the North East my family watched a lot of NY Yankees baseball and NY Giants football. I started following hockey and basketball more closely when my hubby and I moved to Dallas in 1996. We've seen the Dallas Stars bring home the Stanley Cup and it is so nice to see the Mavs have their turn in the spotlight. What makes this team special is that they are a true team made up of seasoned veterans like Jason Kidd and Jason Terry with a veteran star-player in Dirk Nowitzki who is as humble and unassuming as he is tall. Nowitzki is living proof that if you are a team player and you work hard you can make good things happen.

I am so happy for the Mavericks and especially for Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry who were part of the 2006 team and for Jason Kidd who is the oldest player to ever win the championship. I have been a fan of Jason Kidd since his days with the NJ Nets and think he has a fabulous work ethic which makes him a great leader and role model for younger players. For me this may be one of the greatest NBA championship teams because they are a true team!
My Style Shout Out Tip: Like I always tell my daughter if you believe in yourself, and if you work hard you can make anything happen! Thanks Mavs for showing my little one that I was not kidding around when I said it!
